Audience Reviews for Skinned Alive

Surely one of the worst horror films of all time. A mental family apparantly make leather coats from peoples skin but when they end up unexpectedly staying with a local detective who's on to them their time could be up. I can usually find something good to say about even the shittest films but not this one. Its pretty gory in parts, thats it! Theres a review on the front that says "This tops Texas Chain Saw by double"! To even make a comparison to that masterpiece should be criminal. The family in this are like some shit version of the Firefly's from The Devils Rejects and the ending doest make sense either. A horrible moment in my life and a complete waste of time.
